Guest's review of Turner Contemporary Gallery, Margate


“Well worth a visit to Margate”

Written on: 03/06/2011

Living nearby, we have been watching the proposals and building of this for a long time.

We paid a visit in early May.

Knowing the area we parked a five-minue walk away for £1.50 but you can park on the door-step for £6.50 if you prefer.

It's a lovely building, light and airy, and the gardens will be most attractive when completed.

It's certainly well-named 'contemporary'. There are currently works by six artists, plus one Turner and one Webb. These paintings are in a corridor so it must be said that you don't get a long-enough sight=line to view them properly.

The other works, installations really, are housed over several rooms and several of them are designed specifically for the gallery. Mirrors, thousands of beads, sculptures.

We then went to the restaurant for lunch. Well worth a visit, good value for money, mainly local ingredients, fast and efficient waitress service serviced on a sunny terrace (or you can eat indoors if you prefer).

We shall definitely be back.

We too
